I couldn't be happier with my new Baby Jogger CIty Elite double. I do a lot of walking (on and off road) and the City Elite is very easy to handle. The single pull action on the seats to collapse the pram is also easy to use. I believe it is one of the lighter double prams around, and while it is slightly cumbersome to move around when it is collapsed, it's not a problem to get it in and out of the car.
The seats are very padded, the sun shade is the best I've seen - shade flaps have handy magnetic spots to keep them open or closed. The pockets near the handlebar are brilliant for keys, toys, drinks etc - with all of the accessories you could ever need, I dont think you'd ever fill them!! The pram also features adjustable handlebar, easy to use foot brake, good underseat storage, plus additional storage for blankets etc behind the seats. The seats are easilly reclined (independantly) - Im yet to order the soft basinette for the baby (have so far only road tested with my 2 year old and 1 year old nephew). I found this pram had more head room than the Mountain Buggy or Phil & Teds, plus there is a neat little foot rest for short legs.
The only disappointing thing I find which seems to be common amongst a lot of the higher end prams is the lack of accessories. This pram comes with nothing, not even a tyre repair kit or rain/shade covers.
After a test drive I was sold, however the price was slightly off putting - with pram and soft basinette and a couple of basic other accessories I was looking at around $2000. I ended up ordering from a US website, with shipping included I paid considerably less than I would have had to here and recieved my pram in a week.
All in all I am very happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend this pram.
